April 26, 2019 | People in Sooke will soon have better access to primary care, with the expansion of team-based care in the West Coast Family Medical Clinic.
“The improved West Coast Family Medical Clinic is part of our government’s primary care strategy that brings team-based care to people in their communities,” said Premier John Horgan. “This expansion will not only give people in Sooke better, faster access to the health care they need, it will provide new jobs for health-care providers in the area.”
When fully operational, the provincial government will provide more than $1 million annually to support team-based care at the West Coast Family Medical Clinic through the recruitment of two general practitioners, one nurse practitioner and two registered nurses, who will join the existing team. The expansion of team-based care will strengthen the clinic’s services, including primary care, newborn and post-partum care, non-emergency urgent care and medical services to the Elders’ Wellness Clinic at the T’Souke Nation.
